CAD4TB has been developed by Delft Imaging Systems in cooperation with the Radboud University Nijmegen and the Lung Institute in Cape Town. The involvement of academic researchers from the beginning demonstrates the intention to deliver a high-quality and reliable product. The publications on this page are a result of these efforts, and concern various aspects of CAD4TB:
